    Director Santosh Sivan of Asoka fame will be directing a film on Afganistan titled Wedding Party which will be produced by the BBC.

    The film will be about how the whites and Russians arrive in Afghanistan and trace a 100 year history. The cast is yet to be finalized but the script has been penned by an Italian writer.

    As insurance companies are unwilling to insure the film as it is being shot in Afghanistan, the film will likely be shot in Morocco or Ladakh.

    His other film Before the rains will be screened at the 32nd Toronto International Film Festival.
